I'm building a desktop primarily for running 3D graphics programs (specifically Mari and the Autodesk suite.)

This is my first time picking parts on my own, so I'd love some help making sure that the parts I've chosen are compatible with each other. Also, the i7-3820 does not come with cooling device, which I really need help picking. I could also use help picking a PSU.

I'm mostly looking to make sure everything will actually work together, although I'll definitely consider suggestions about changing some parts for reasons other than noncompatibility. The video card is the most important item for me, it can't change. I also would not like to change the CPU unless I have to. The motherboard I'm a little more open to changing, but all the other LGA 2011 compatible motherboards seemed to be at least $100 more and this one had decent reviews.

Anyway, here's what I was thinking so far...

PNY VCQ4000-PB Quadro 4000 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Workstation Video Card

Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80619i73820
